       imsmap - generate fractal maps


       imsmap  [-display host:display.screen] [-foreground color] [-background
       color] [-window] [-root] [-mono] [-install] [-visual visual]  [-ncolors
       int]  [-delay  seconds] [-iterations int] [-mode h|s|v|random] [-cycle]


       The imsmap program generates map  or  cloud-like  patterns.   It  looks
       quite different in monochrome and color.


       imsmap accepts the following options:

       -window Draw on a newly-created window.  This is the default.

       -root   Draw on the root window.

       -mono   If on a color display, pretend we’re on a monochrome display.

               Install a private colormap for the window.

       -visual visual
               Specify  which  visual  to use.  Legal values are the name of a
               visual class, or the id number (decimal or hex) of  a  specific

       -ncolors integer
               How many colors to use.  Default 50.

       -delay integer
               How long to delay between images.  Default 10 seconds.

       -iterations integer
               A  measure  of the resolution of the resultant image, from 0 to
               7.  Default 7.

       -mode [ hue | saturation | value | random ]
               The axis upon which colors should be interpolated  between  the
               foreground and background color.  Default random.


               Whether to do colormap cycling.  Default is to cycle.

               Number  of microseconds between shifts of the colormap; default
               100000, or 1/10th second.


       DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.

               to get the name of a resource file that  overrides  the  global
               resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.
